KEYNOTE – Customer Defined Networking: The Journey Continues

Travis Ewert | SVP – Network SW Development | Level 3 Communications

 

 

When the expedition began, On-Demand Networking and Self-Serve through Portals/UI's was the target to enable the customer. This "single-pane-of-glass" approach for network control functions is quickly becoming more of a secondary, or administrative, role. The Enterprise, Datacenter, Cloud Exchange, and Next-Generation Communication Providers now seek to more intelligently integrate their software-centric ecosystems with those that provide a Network-as-a-Service platform.

Travis will provide customer updates and trends toward a model that is more 'defined' by the customer through advanced API's and/or programmed against Data & Analytics.

MULTI-ACCESS EDGE COMPUTING (MEC) FORUM

 
 

 

 
 

 

Layer123 is delighted to host this second MEC Forum, which has been organised by ETSI MEC ISG and WG leadership.

 
 

 

Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) offers application developers and content providers cloud-computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of the network. This environment is characterized by ultra-low latency and high bandwidth as well as real-time access to radio network information that can be leveraged by applications.

MEC provides a new ecosystem and value chain. Operators can open their Radio Access Network (RAN) edge to authorized third-parties, allowing them to flexibly and rapidly deploy innovative applications and services towards mobile subscribers, enterprises and vertical segments.

MEC is a natural development in the evolution of mobile base stations and the convergence of IT and telecommunications networking. Multi-access Edge Computing will enable new vertical business segments and services for consumers and enterprise customers. Use cases include:

· Video analytics
· Location services
· Internet-of-Things (IoT)
· Virtual and augmented reality
· Optimized local content distribution and
· Data caching
